Florence Lock - Great Grand Aunt...Part 1

Updated: Jun 20, 2022

Florence’s story is a long and complicated one. Her family history and what brought her to a children’s home in London (from Wales) deserves an article of its own. This article relates to her once she left the children’s home. I have many letters of Florence’s from the children’s home, her employer and the board of guardians in Wales.

We must remember that Florence would be regarded as a minor up to the age of 21. One thing that did surprise me was the interest shown in Florence way past her 21st birthday. I don’t know what I expected, it certainly wasn’t a tale from a Dickens novel.

I will be adding images of letters regularly, so please come back and visit often.

If you have any questions, please leave in the comments section.
